Zimmerman Gets $150K Bail

A Florida judge granted bail to George Zimmerman on Friday, but said the accused killer would not be released immediately. The judge set bail at $150,000 for Zimmerman, who faces second-degree murder charges in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman apologized to the teen’s parents for the “loss of their child.” George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie Zimmerman, testified by phone that her husband is “absolutely not a violent person.” As a condition of his release, Zimmerman will wear GPS monitoring. His release date is unknown.
